Cholesterol monitors help to determine the level of cholesterol in your body and can help to avoid possible complications in the future. If you have a history of artery problems or high blood pressure then it can be beneficial that you take a cholesterol test several times a year.

Your body uses cholesterol to produce many hormones, vitamin D, and the bile acids that help to digest fat. But if you have too much cholesterol in your bloodstream, the excess may be deposited in the arteries of the heart, which could lead to heart disease. For people at risk of heart disease, doctors will use a cholesterol monitor regularly to track levels of cholesterol in their blood. Typically, cholesterol monitors require very little blood in order to take a reading. Cholesterol monitors have evolved to become small, simple devices that can be used in the home.
